When Marlon Brando burst upon the scene in the epic Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire, no one was prepared for the intensity of his performance--especially when he brought these skills to a Golden Age Hollywood unused to such range. Drawing upon his studies at Lee Strasburg's Actors Studio, Brando channeled every buried emotion into his characters, and the result was mesmerizing. From James Dean to Jack Nicholson to Daniel Day-Lewis, Brando's influence can be seen through the decades.
DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
Arguably the most quoted film of all time, and certainly one of the best pictures ever made, The Godfather marked Brando's comeback after a series of box office disasters (and a reputation for being difficult.) Brando's performance won him his second Oscar, and helped make the film the highest grossing film of 1972. A classic by any standard.
